The future development of hollow-core flame retardant masterbatch polymer materials amazing truth, with the rapid development of science and technology, polymer materials in recent years gradually expand the application areas. Due to the flammability of polymer materials, the application and research of flame retardants have received global attention. As a material aid to reduce the ignition ability of materials, flame retardants have now become important additives for polymer materials.
Currently, the world's four major flame retardant markets are: the United States, Europe, Japan and other Asia Pacific. Among the four markets, the fastest growth was in other parts of Asia. Statistics show that from 2006 to 2010, the average annual growth rate of global flame retardants was 4.1%, while other Asian countries and regions with an average annual growth rate of 12.5%. It is predicted that from 2008 to 2014, the global flame retardant dosage With an average annual growth rate of 4.9% and sales of up to 7%, the global usage and sales of flame retardants in 2014 could reach 2620 and 61 billion U.S. dollars respectively (equivalent to 40 billion yuan).
Due to the transfer of the international downstream industrial chain, the domestic flame retardant industry has developed rapidly. At present, the dosage of flame retardant in China is 180,000 ~ 220,000 tons / year. 2007 ~ 2011, China's average annual use of flame retardants increased by about 15%. It is understood that currently on the market of flame retardants products are mainly divided into two categories of inorganic flame retardants and organic flame retardants. Hollow board flame-retardant masterbatch of which inorganic flame retardants such as antimony trioxide, magnesium hydroxide and other flame retardant system; organic flame retardants, including bromine, nitrogen and phosphorus-based compounds represented by some of the flame retardant products. It is noteworthy that, despite the rapid development of China's flame retardant industry, but the domestic consumption structure of flame retardant products is not reasonable, the performance of brominated flame retardants account for a huge market share. However, from 2008 to 2010, with the soaring domestic bromine prices, the tendency of brominated flame retardants to be replaced by relatively low-cost halogen-free flame retardants has been continuously strengthened, and the market of brominated flame retardants shows a certain degree of decline status.
